The aspirants are complaining about the delay in conducting NEET UG 2021 counselling and the further delay in many states which deprived them of the time to prepare. Users on the micro-blogging site Twitter are saying that it is unfair to conduct the exam on July 17.

A Twitter handle called NEET(UG)-JEE Students Association tweeted requesting the National Testing Agency (NTA), education minister Dharmendra Pradhan and the ministry of education for NEET-UG postponement saying that droppers are not getting enough time for revision. "Last year, the NEET-UG exam was on 12 September & this year on July 17th! The dropper is not even getting exactly 10 months! Why students will have to suffer if the officials took more time than usual to declare the result, conduct the counseling process? #NTAdeferNEETUG," said the association.

"The next academic session will not start before feb2023 acc to notification by nmc. Then instead of making us wait for 6 7 months why dont you just postpone the exam by 1 month at least so that we can prepare well?," asks Sonalika P, in a tweet.
